A massive party in Brampton last night was shut down by police after it got too rowdy. 

Peel police say between 1,500 and 2,000 teenagers showed up at a "mansion party," as it was dubbed on Twitter, on Stanley Carberry Dr, which is near Goreway Dr and Mayfield Rd.

David, a Newstalk 1010 listener, told The Motts this morning that his 17-year-old daughter went to the party. He says there was a cover charge and hired security. 

He says his daughter arrived at about 9:30 p.m. and police showed up within 45 minutes. 

He says that he's already told her that she is to never to go to an event like that again. 

Peel Police were called after receving a noise complaint by one of the neighbours.

Const. Thomas Ruttan says when the first cop car showed up, it became clear they would need back up.

"We did call officers from every division," he said. "I beleive the tactical unit went as well."

But not everyone went without a fight.

"Several officers were assaulted and we did make arrests as a result of that," said Ruttan.

Arrests were also made for public intoxication.

Police say the home where the party took place is currently under construction and say the event caused "significant damage."

    If I saw massive numbers of people especially teens walking down my neighbourhood street I'd phone the police I wouldn't waste time tweeting. This could have turned deadly in seconds.

      @Cara Agreed. It also goes to show the upbringing of today's' children and their morals, to go to a place under construction to trespass. Shame on them all.

      @lula Some humans are cockroaches..... Seems like I can't paint my livingroom without the whole neighbourhood hearing about it - I wonder how this many kids can swarm a home without someone pulling the plug much sooner.....

      @Cristina Can you not see that it was a major fire hazard? Are you that blind?! If a fire started many would have died.

      What ever happened to people being able to see the consequences of certain actions before the trouble shows up? Sigh

      @Cristina Is that what you kids are telling each other to justify your behaviour? That we were the same? I'll beg to differ on that.

      My parents were allowed to parent, without the danger of their kids calling CAS on them. We were no where NEAR as entitled as kids are today.

      No. We weren't the same.

    @Cristina - $70k in damages. That's the price of what you call "chillin". That's someone's college education fund plus more. Chillin is good but not when you are not respecting others. Enjoying life is good BUT dangerous if you are crossing the bounds of disrepecting others let alone your parents. You want people to care for you when clearly you don't care for others. Consider serving other people than yourself. It might just land you a future.

      @john It's a nice street in a nice neighbourhood...all the houses are on two acre (or more) lots, all the places are huge, many are home to extended families of us brown people. I wish that I could afford to build and live there.. guess I need to steal less of my employer's time and resources and work harder.

      I guess I just need to resent them a bit more for now...when Ford gets reelected in Toronto, he'll make them move back to the old country and give his supporters their land for more living room.

      @john Nice John. You can't even compose a sentence correctly. Once your own home has been tweeted for teens to party and it goes viral, 2000 kids shows up in your home, damages at $70k - we won't feel sorry for you too regardless where you live. Just hope that's your own home and not your folks paying for damages. On the same note, careful driving fast in your very nice car - am guessing the deed on that car is also your Dad's.
